THE MON­KEY IN THE KEYS

Anglers Journal - - MAIL -

Re: John Brown­lee’s “A Conch’s Life,” Win­ter 2017: My grand­par­ents Irma and Car­roll Kennedy owned Breezy Palms, the Florida Keys re­sort with the mon­key — which was my mother’s — that Brown­lee writes about. They have

all passed away, but I re­mem­ber them telling my brother and me sto­ries about it. They only started chain­ing the mon­key to a tree when a cus­tomer com­plained about it steal­ing her lip­stick and both­er­ing her in the pool. This was in the ’50s, when my mother was a teenager.
